No longer settle for pre-packaged pasta when making it fresh is easy and tastes so much better.
Rated 5 out of 5 by fcsinaz from Beautifully easy. Much better than roller ones. I bought this 2 months ago in an effort to ease the work involved in making homemade pasta. Before this wonderful gadget I used the roller style pasta attachments that also go with my KitchenAid 6 quart mixer. I’ve been the proud owner of KitchenAid Mixers for more than 40 years. They are the only mixers I will own. The ease of this Gourmet Pasta Attachment is stunning. I use real semolina flour recipes and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Of course I will keep my roller attachments as I still need them for lasagna and ravioli but this one is my new go-to pasta maker. Tonight it’s homemade Asian pan-fried noodles. Absolutely delicious!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FLROB from Great product for homemade pasta I loved the pasta press and cutter attachment so bought this to expand homemade pasta creativity. This works great, and I make pasta with some chickpea flour, and add spinach for green spinach pasta. I'll try others. But, you must get the pasta dough hydration correct. Not difficult but start with recipes and then use your judgment and feel of the dough. I use some semolina for strength, and usually eggs, but there are so many recipes for low/no gluten. Pass on eggs if you wish. With these products, you create your own pasta. Clean up of presses takes time but worth it. I'm glad I bought this and the pasta roller (which I use more).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Maypackage from Not my Favorite I purchased this a 1-1/2 years ago. Have tried it a couple of times and not really happy with it. I tried it with several varieties of pasta. Can't seem to get the tubes to stay hollow. It would on one end by not the other. I tried changing the speed, changing the doughs, adding more flour and still not satisfactory. I tried the fusilli shape. I only had 3 that came out with the amazing twist I desired. This was waaaay to much effort for less that satisfactory results. Then the clean up. Yuck. What a mess. I need to go and purchase another box of toothpicks. I wanted this to work so badly...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kitchenaid user from Does not work [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The pasta ring broke the first time I used it, with a typical extruder pasta dough recipe. The plastic parts for this extruder are not sturdy enough for use with an extruder where heat and pressure work the pasta dough through the dies to form the pasta noodles. The components need to be made of metal such as stainless steel or aluminum. There is no customer support in Singapore to help bring in the replacement pasta ring (they don't know what I'm talking about even when I gave them the part no) and Kitchenaid in US can't help because I'm not in the US.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TheThistleGirl from It's Alright.... I recently got a kitchenaid and 2 attachments. The gourmet pasta press, and 3 piece pasta roller/cutter set. I definitely prefer the cutter set more. The pasta press DOES work and makes pasta, not great, but it works. It takes a long time, about 2 hours for 1 batch of dough (recipe in the manual). It also always wastes a bit of dough since it never fully gets everything out. The plastic ring that holds the plate on always get stuck super tight and I have to put rubber gloves on to get enough grip to take it off (even my husband had trouble). It does work, but for normal spaghetti noodles, get the rollers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Scarlette29 from One good noodle per cut... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Quite simply, if you are making a tube-shaped pasta, you are likely getting one good noodle per cut (good meaning open on both ends). The wire drags across the plate, essentially sealing one end of the tube. The noodle that is open on both ends is the one closest to the wire. I tried adding flour to the included recipe, flouring the ball before tossing it in the hopper, slow cut, fast cut, flouring the wire between cuts. I can not be the only person having this issue, yet I can not find a trouble shoot. Is there a trouble shoot for this issue?

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusE from My Most Favorite Attachment So Far... I have had the Pasta Press for 4+ years now and I love it! The primary purpose that I purchased my Kitchenaid Stand Mixer after my daughter enjoyed fresh homemade pasta at a friend's house, she raved about it, could not stop talking about it. I had contemplated purchasing a Kitchenaid mixer, my mother got hers in the 70's, made coleslaw with it nearly every night. It wasn't until I wanted to make homemade pasta that I actually purchased one. I also have the pasta rollers and ravioli maker but my favorite is the Pasta Press. It's easy to use, it took me a few tries to get the consistency just right with the pasta dough but I enjoy having fresh homemade pasta, I kept with it and I love it! Love how easy it is to use. It gives me options for the types of pasta I can enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CookieKathy from So much fun! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My son wanted to try making homemade pasta, so we went out and bought this. We were between this and the other pasta attachment (the one that makes sheets), and decided on this. WOW! So easy to make quality pasta, and with all the different dies(6) it's never the same twice! It only takes about an hour, and you get almost 2 lbs. of fresh pasta. Really enjoy using it, and both of my sons (in their early 20s, still at home) help, so I get rare time with them as well. One hint - you need more water than the recipe in the book calls for. It says one tablespoon, and I've found that 4 (1/4 cup) works best.
